The dressing was fun, the pineapple and onion worked, but all together it just didn't work for us.

Excellent and so different. I used sugar vs. Splenda and doubled the red pepper flakes for extra zing.

This kept the guests guessing. I used it as a side dish and it complemented the dinner well. It was either a like it or not salad, most liked it. I prepared everything the night before and tossed it all together at serving time.
